According to ACS recommendations and guidelines from several European medical societies, prostate cancer screening begins at age 50 years for those at average risk who are expected to live 10 or more years. Screening for men at extremely high risk (more than one first-degree relative with prostate cancer at a young age) begins at age 40 years. Screening for those at slightly higher risk than average (a first-degree relative with prostate cancer at a young age) begins at age 45 years. European guidelines also recommend that individuals who carry the BRCA and BRAC2 mutations undergo earlier screening as well.
